Hi, I'm Hakan

I provide holistic and thoughtful Gestalt Psychotherapy sessions where my clients can gain more awareness and acceptance of themselves.

What my clients say:

” I found Hakan warm and genuine and felt comfortable and connected from the start. I found him to be a great fit for me as we worked through difficult emotions but have been left with a life, I am happy to live. He is intelligent, caring, and warm and I’m so delighted to have worked with him. “


What I believe?

It is my belief that people are inherently good and happy. Sometimes patterns develop which interrupt this connection. I work with clients to develop awareness around these patterns and then step into their full potential.

My approach:

I use various modalities, grounded in Gestalt theory, to work with clients & help them live more balanced and fulfilled lives, free from suffering. Including meditative practice, dream analysis and narrative therapy.

Gestalt Therapy is a holistic approach to counselling that helps you develop awareness, change stuck patterns, make different choices, reduce shame and increase self compassion. It does this through presence focused work and the strengthening of the ability to be in relationship to others.

I have been a practicing Gestalt counsellor and psychotherapist since 2014 and offer confidential therapy underpinned by a compassionate and confirming stance.

I have been a practicing Gestalt Therapist since 2014 and also as a School  Councillor for troubled youth in Melbourne’s West.
